Company Stocks Ruses

The report shows that the company’s stock has risen 21.36 percent, thereby increasing 1.25 Canadian dollars as at the time of press. As of last year, the stock dropped 19 percent in the midst of a bear market for crypto investments.

A $76.65 million net loss for the third quarter of 2018 was reported by Galaxy in November. As at then, Novogratz commented on the outcomes noting that it “sucks to build a business in a bear market,” however, he still showed optimism in regards to the company and foretold an influx of institutional money into cryptocurrencies in 2019 together with a resulting bull run.

In the previous year, Galaxy went public through a reverse partnership with a listed pharmaceutical company.
